Biiiiig moves, bidding's already up to $4,450!

A reminder that new bidders are allowed to bid under $4,450, but they must freeze immediately upon bidding.

...How does upping work for non-frozen bids? If I wanted to up 04, do I bid $1,031, since it's not a frozen top bid and technically doesn't have the $20 cushion, or $1,050? Whatever it is, I'll throw insult to injury by bidding it and freezing.

Without the cushion, $1,031 is an acceptable bid. I'm assuming you want to do that.

Sorry, rockyboy; when you underbid at $1,130 you were required to automatically freeze, since it was under the top bid.

[Host note: I'm not exactly in love with this rule after seeing it in action, but for fairness purposes we'll enforce it for the rest of this episode.

Before putting this together I playtested three different versions with some friends:
A) one where you raise to whatever amount you wanted, as long as it was >$20 more than your previous bid
B) one where you could raise to whatever amount you wanted, but must freeze immediately if it was below the top bid
C) the Cullen-style rules that we have now, where raises must be over the top bid

Option C worked well with 4-7 people, and that's what I thought would be typical. But if 12+ bids are happening regularly I'm wondering if option A or B would have been better. Clearly there are some kinks in this format need to be worked out.]
